  • Do You Have a Headache yet?
  • am always asked – what is The 26.2 Group – why 26.2? So let me get that right out of the way … there are 26.2 Miles in a Marathon, My last name is Miles, so I teach - No matter what you do … whether it’s just life, parenting, marriage, sales & marketing, training, and especially now social media … take it one mile at a time, one social media channel at a time – don’t focus on the past, don’t get to anxious about the future – be in the moment. Marathon runners, will think occasionally about the finish line, however, the majority of the race they are focused on the next mile marker, the next stride, the next turn – they are in the moment … so that’s what I am going to ask of you during our time together … lets take one mile at a time, almost one slide at a time … Mitch Miles is President of The 26.2 Group, a social training and strategy organization based in the Piedmont Triad Region of North Carolina. He assists businesses with strategy, coaching and implementation of social media solutions in order to grow their business, stay connected to their clients, as well as engage strategic partners and vendors. Mitch currently teaches social media marketing at GTCC, and this summer is conducting several social media summer camps at The Proximity Hotel.
